    was going to happen.  I hope the low information voters learned a lesson.

      They don't understand how it works or what the consequences are - they simply wanted something to change so they took it out on the Dems and voted in a bunch of Repubs who promised them things would change.

      And of course, things did change.  But that's how low information a lot of voters are.  It took a HUGE effort to get the word out on SB5, and it was an issue that had a lot of appeal to the regular working person.  

      There just isn't time, money or people-power enough to get all of the concerns we have out there where voters actually learn about them because they see it everywhere they look.  It's too big an effort to sustain for every issue; I hope we can figure out some way to get voters to understand what's at stake that doesn't take thousands of volunteers, hundreds of thousands of dollars, and a million petition signatures.  But I'm afraid I don't have any answer for that so I'll just shut up now.

      We need to be a lot more like Wisconsin!
